Description: The character of Sangiovese and the fascination of Cabernet Sauvignon together yield an intense wine, with scents of sour black cherry and subtle hints of vanilla and spice. This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in vineyards averaging 15 years of age and yielding 75 quintals per hectare, is a wine of superb complexity and character. It ferments in specialised temperature-controlled tanks, with a lengthy maceration on the skins, followed by 18 months in 550-litre Allier oak casks and a further 6 months bottle-ageing.
